Register now. 

This webinar series, consisting of two 90-minute sessions, will introduce participants to some of the central insights of the work Levy has been doing over the past decade and more. By learning to pay attention to their immediate experience (what's going on in their minds and bodies) while they're online, people are able to see more clearly what's working well for them and what isn't, and based on these observations to develop personal guidelines that allow them to operate more effectively and healthfully. Levy will demonstrate this work by giving participants exercises they can do, both during the online program and between the sessions.


David M. Levy is a professor at the Information School of the University of Washington. For more than a decade, he has been exploring, via research and teaching, how we can establish a more balanced relationship with our digital devices and apps. He has given many lectures and workshops on this topic, and in January 2016 published a book on the subject, Mindful Tech: How to Bring Balance to Our Digital Lives (Yale). Levy is also the author of Scrolling Forward: Making Sense of Documents in the Digital Age (rev. ed. 2016). Additional information is available on his website
